Well, I didn't make it to my daughter's big performance. Do you remember watching "Bewitched" when you were growing up? She could just twinkle her nose and be anywhere in the world. Do you remember trying and trying to twinkle your nose? This can be a difficult thing at times; choosing other people over your family. Unfortunately, the wedding was scheduled for weeks while the Band Director did not give me the performance information until Thursday. I don't like last minute stuff because it puts me in this position of choosing between my daughter and my calling.
At the mandatory party, I got to see my first D.S. He appointed me here and told me that I was doing a great job. He sits on the Board of Ordained Ministry, so I was happy to hear that.
All my other activities went off without a hitch. I do have a question for all of you clergy-type people out there. How much do you charge for doing a wedding?
